Castle Hill

Castle Hill is a picturesque hill-type estate located at Mussoorie, Pauri Garhwal District. Maharaja Duleep Singh, the last Sikh sovereign of the Punjab, stayed here for a short period. Spread over an area of 180 acres, Caste Hill is an ideal tourist destination. With battlements and iron gateway, the place gives an impression of a fortress. Castle Hill, originally known as Woodcraft and Greenmount, was the private property of G B Taylor. There are many things in the area reminiscent of the stay of Duleep Singh. Today the offices of the Survey India are located here. Jolly Grant Airport is the nearest airport.
